About Me


Philosophy:

- I love dogs (more than people).

- My name is Sandra Bavasso Roffo and I am living in the US but I am originally from Bs. As., Argentina (what explains my weird English grammar).

- According to others, I am pretty intelligent (but pretty impacient).

- I don't care what people think about me (therefore I am not always "politically correct")

- I may see the world different than you do (but I am always curious to know why people see the world as they see it).

- I love Communications (my "official" field, I have a BS in Social Communications with a Major in Advertising and Public Opinion), psychology and sociology. I believe that with a good knowledge of those 3 plus economy and common sense, you can explain almost everything that is happening or had happened in the world.

- I am not good at lying but still I manage to be a pretty decent poker player.

- I love my friends but I prefer to have just a few ones.

- I enjoy good design and outrageous ideas.

- My native language is Spanish, but as you can see my English is not bad at all. I also know some French even if I haven't practiced it in a long, looong time (quelques annes deja!). I do understand Italian and at some point I would love to start studying German again. Would love to learn Chinese but I am not sure I would have the patience. You have to had oriental patience to write those ideograms down!

-I have traveled half the world but I hope I can do the other half at some point. So many countries and cultures, so little time!



Background:

- I started as a creative copywriter in the advertising industry. Have also worked as a consultant, Operations Manager, Product Manager and now I am Marketing Director for an online company.

- I also taught creativity for a long time (almost 10 years) at College degree level.

- I started on the advertising world as a copywriter and make it to Creative Director. But I got bored...

- So, early on, I got interested in the online media and become a consultant in that area.

- From time to time I also write articles for different magazines and newspapers.

I have been in the US several times, but I moved to live here in 2003. I enjoy my job mostly because I love the always changing online media. Is a bit more challenging and I love challenges.

I live in SoFla but I don't like it too much..., but I don't care. The world is big enough and I will probably move somewhere else at some point...

From the US, so far, I really enjoyed NYC, San Francisco, Austin and Philly. But there is still a lot to see...

Of course I remember you, "the other" Oscar! Thanks for the compliments and thanks for your hug.

I will try to get your email through Oscar "the first" (he will like that title) to get in touch...

You are an insightful writer; are you posting somewhere else?

Take care,
